This may or may not be a good book!
Okay, I don't like men who cry...unless someone has kicked them in the crotch...then they can cry. It is better when they yell instead of cry. I kept hearing a whiny voice in my head while I was reading this one. Some people (well, probably most people) will tell you this is a touching narrative from a man who is comfortable in his own skin and who is not afraid of his feelings. Poppycock, he is a whiner...I got tired of listening to the whining in my head so I stopped reading it around pg75. Skipped a bunch of pages, I still heard the whine. Flipped to the end....more whine. Got up and made me a grilled cheese sandwich.

Funny, tearjerking, and reassuringly feelgood.

Book Description
Harry Silver is ready to try again at living "happily ever after." It won't be easy: not when he has to juggle his wife, his ex-wife, his son, his stepdaughter, his work, and his new wife's fast-growing career. Did Harry commit to marriage to Cyd too soon after his split with Gina? Can you love -- really love -- a child who is not your own? Can you be a good father to a child you only see on the weekends? When Harry meets a woman who makes him question all these things and more, his tangled web becomes even more knotty.

A brilliant sequel to the international bestseller Man and Boy, Tony Parsons' Man and Wife is a story about families -- and love -- in the new century, written with his trademark humor, passion, and superb storytelling that have made millions across the globe laugh and cry.

Good book. Tony Parsons is a great writer. Read Man and Boy first, though. It makes this one easier to understand.

A sequel to the international bestseller "Man and Boy", this also stands on its own as a brilliant novel about relationships in the new century. The inimitable Tony Parsons does it again.
